Default my plans

still have my VW but have been scouting some really clean smurf blue miatas.

heres my shopping list so far

car with 1.8
buddy of mine is gonna fab hard piped IC
also gonna fab up an exhaust.
going megasquirt (looking more into all that as we speak).
doucheworks injectors (purposely mispelled...
random cone filter i have lying around.

was looking to make 300....then i really started looking and thinking....what the hell do i need 300whp for? so ive come to a reasonable 200+ hah.
injectors wise i think for my power im shooting for 600's would be fine (havent looked to see whats offered for these cars but i want around there)

is there a place i can source a pre tapped oil pan and some oil lines?

also i have no idea what i want for manifold.
